This is a great deal on an original silver plate King Saxello soprano saxophone! The Saxello has a BIG warm, spread tone that fills a room. It is nothing like the thin, nasal soprano tone you find on many modern sopranos. Really gorgeous sounding. I just had a guy in here playing tenors, who took this horn down and played some crazy Bach Chaconne on this. Even on the older pads, it is still tons of fun to play. You can see, by the gray around post feet, that several stack posts were resoldered. Not sure why, honestly. The neck octave key has also been repaired. But hey, for this price, you get a collectible, rare, and very playable soprano that is more comfortable to play and sounds better compared to most other horns out there.
